Plant Responses to the Gaseous Environment: Molecular, metabolic and physiological aspects

Overview

The study of air pollution effects on vegetation has made rapid progress in the last five years. At the 3rd International Symposium on Air Pollutants and Plant Metabolism, Virginia Polytechnic Institute, June 1992, the world's experts gathered to discuss the metabolic and molecular processes influenced by air pollutants. Each speaker was chosen to cover progress, especially that of the last 5 years, in various areas related to plant metabolism and air pollution effects. The ideas presented at the conference are ...

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The proceedings of the 3rd International Symposium on Air Pollutants and Plant Metabolism, held in Blacksburg, Virginia, June 1992, provide a unified account of the effects of air pollution on plant metabolism. The volume is broadly divided into four sections. The first is an introduction addressing contemporary issues such as global warming. This is followed by a climatological overview of the problems and physiological consequences of interactions involving altered CO2 levels. Changes in physiological and molecular responses are a major element of the volume and particular attention is paid to the molecular genetics of proteins associated with resistance to oxidative stress. The final section considers the ecological and physiological aspects of forest-pollutant interactions. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
